Can’t boot into BIOS from HP laptop, any help?

HP Recommended

Basically I’m locked out of my laptop (or rather a laptop given to me by a family member who can’t remember their password)

So I’ve been trying to boot into the BIOS, but it hasn’t been working. I can’t get into the BIOS any other way because I can’t log in.

I signed into the WiFi and tried to type the wrong password in multiple times to see if it would prompt me with a password reset, but it just says I’m offline... and I am not because I see the signal says I’m connected.

On a laptop with Windows 10, how do I boot into the BIOS? If it’s with one of the F keys, do I need to hold down ‘fn’ along with the proper F key?

I’ve tried holding down f2, f6, f8, and f10 but it just boots normally. What’s going on??
